Notnyt have put any dampening material in any of the subs you've built? I'm asking because I'm trying to decide if I should or not in my subs that I've built.

Thanks in advance!

This thread is what I needed! Sure, the build is incredible...but I'm putting this build up to show the wife first, THEN, hit her with the full marty.
Seriously though, great work, most impressive.

Seriously awesome build. I cannot imagine listening your system at close to full capacity. It must be incredible. Great work. Large ported subs are tons of fun!

Going to mount the subs in #4 and test after I finish up some work. Basically, all done, I just need to get the subs mounted and lift the enclosure.

Yes, I need to dust... and vacuum. This build made quite a mess.

All 4 are done, I'm just waiting for assistance lifting it. Tested it earlier, no abnormal noises so that's good.

Impressions?

Maybe a full tilt video with an EDM track with a focus on 40-80Hz and a SPL meter at LP? I'd like to see that.

My meter doesn't read high enough. =[

Impressions... well.. it's giant subs that are really loud and sound really good smile.gif I'm running XT32 still.

A video would still be fun to see smile.gif

What meter do you have?

I would also be curious to see the air movement from the port in a video if it is not too much hassle.

Could you post a full range response and phase graph with no smoothing?

I posted phase response here:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1516234/8x-18-lms-5400-ultras-sealed-to-27-cube-15hz-ported-build/100_100#post_24387780

As for video, I've posted one before once I built them, let me see if I can find another. It's really not impressive as the cones don't move much.

You can grab a video here: https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&confirm=vNli&id=0B4dxOh63yRQ4REFwaWhJMTFkVEk

Youtube is 30fps, and that's encoded at 60, so I don't want to kill the framerate and introduce the awful stutters youtube does. I'll eventually re-encode it. Some slow-mo in there too, enjoy wink.gif
